This member update provides important HUD guidance on notice requirements for evictions plus 2022 COLA increase announces.  Also mark your calendars for our next COVID Call on Thursday, October 28 at 1pm.  

HUD Guidance Issued on New Notice Requirements for Evictions

HUD published “Supplemental Guidance to the Interim Final Rule ‘Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent’” Notice PIH 2021-29. This provides additional guidance to an interim final rule that was also published earlier this month.  The interim final rule specified that where there is federal funding available due to the declaration of a national emergency, PHAs with public housing and owners with project-based rental assistance (PBRA) must do the following at HUD’s discretion:

  • Provide at least 30 days from the date a tenant receives a notice of lease termination for failure to pay rent before terminating the tenant; and
  • Provide information (e.g., information about how to apply for and receive emergency federal funding) to the tenant as determined by HUD.

The rule does not apply to the Housing Choice Voucher program. Read NAHRO’s full blog post here.

 

2022 COLA Increase Published – Largest in 30 Years

Almost 70 million Americans who receive Social Security benefits will see a 5.9% increase in 2022 – the largest increase since 1982.  This increase may impact income of your residents with fixed income. View the Social Security Administration’s 2022 COLA Fact Sheet here.

 

Urge Congress to Keep Housing In Infrastructure Bill

Take Action Today Using NAHRO’ Action Alert 

Negotiations continue between a divided Democratic party and threaten to undermine the hard work NAHRO and its members have done to ensure housing is included in infrastructure legislation.

The $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act is stuck in the House of Representatives as leadership tries to gather votes for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF), which is a related piece of President Biden’s “Build Back Better Agenda.” The Build Back Better Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to preserve and create affordable housing that currently includes $80 billion for public housing, $75 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers, $40+ billion for HOME and CDBG, and billions more for other essential programs. These essential housing infrastructure investments are at risk of being cut from negotiations entirely. We cannot let this happen! We must tell Congress and the White House not to miss this opportunity to help the lives of millions of Americans.
